(Updated) US Judge Denies Samsung’s Appeal To Continue Selling Galaxy Nexus Pending Appeal

Updated: According to AllThingsD, Samsung and Google are working to “imminently” push out a software fix that works around the “Universal Search” patent that is the main violation behind the injunction. 

Not quite the way we wanted to kick off the Fourth of July as U.S District Judge Lucy Koh denied Samsung’s request to stay the injunction on the Galaxy Nexus pending resolution of an appeal reports Reuters. This wraps up 24 hours of not so good luck for Samsung as yesterday saw a similar appeal for the resumption of Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales which also was denied.

Oh Samsung, keep fighting the good fight.

Developing…

  • smithgo

    fuck you apple. good thing I have my gNex home by my side waiting for jelly bean 

  • Pete

    Ungh… very happy that I just received from Google on Monday my Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ version. 

  • Big burger potato nipple

     Apple is on the top of mnt douchebag right now for doing this

  • Rfgenerator

    It’s pretty apparent that Lucy Koh is in the pocket of Apple.  I’d place odds that she is an avid Apple fan with a household of Apple products and a limited knowledge of actual technology

      And you are an expert in IP right? You have to be to comment on blogs!!!! Go get em tiger. Tell us the real legal mumbojumbo.

    Now is the time for Google to give Apple a taste of their own medicine. Apple is blocking the sales of this phone over the lock screen feature which is outright ridiculous. They really feel threatened over this so much that it’s going to affect their iphone sales? Personally I think they want to see if they can block the sale of the first phone to offer jelly bean. It’s still not stopping the o/s from releasing Apple so maybe you should be scared. Now is the time for Google to use their patents. Apple did actually and still is making money on I am sure quite a few.

  • Apple?Samsung?

    Funny thing is Judge Lucy Koh is Korean!  I’m sure she herself was put in a tough spot though.  Had she sided with Korea’s Samsung, some people might think she is biased.   At the same time, I’m pretty sure many Koreans are cursing her right now for her ruling.

    • Frigadroid

      Most Koreans all ready know all about the corruption, shame & embarassment brought on the republic by the improper business practices of the samsung executives. I’m sure she has no problem doing her job when it comes to making a simple decision.
      People should stop suspecting something fishy everytime a judge makes a decision.

    Ordered my Nexus on Monday at Noon Eastern. I received my confirmation but then panicked since I hadn’t heard anything about a tracking number. Called Google Play and the rep I spoke to (who picked up immediately btw) told me not to worry about any injunction. Google Play is operating “business as usual” were his exact words. Even sent me a follow up email letting me know I should receive tracking info tonight, and the phone should arrive by Friday. 

    TL;DR I got my Nexus and Apple can suck it.

    • JBLmobileG1

      Hopefully that rep knows what he’s talking about. If this went through they probably need to hault sales immediately. Maybe it doesn’t affect you though because you ordered before it was denied so they have the right to fulfill your order. It could also be that they just can’t ship any new phones to the states but doesn’t affect the sales of current product here. All I know is Apple really is digging a grave for themselves… greed will ruin them if it hasn’t already.

    • souggie

      man me too!, I ordered mine at 5pm eastern time, and it went through successfully, i didnt hear anything about tracking, so i called google play, and i got a rep, the rep said everything should be fine, but he was gonna check to make sure that it would go through…hopefully i get mine too!

      • souggie

        got a reply! Google says its going to be shipped without delay! YEAH!!

    No respect for the patent system and less respect for apple. I wish this nonsense would be brought to light in the mainstream. I want everyone to know how sleazy apple is.

    Apple: we got iLawyers and iCourts, bitches.

  • Jaws

    Good. If it means I have less Samsung/Android related stuff in my RSS feed I’m certainly for it.

  • Trevnerdio

    Just ol’ Judgy Koh down on her knees for some Apple again

  • Joseph Tongret

    I really think Google is going to come after Apple in a very aggressive way! I don’t know how, when, or what they’re strategy is going to be, but I’ve got a feeling Apple just started a shit storm!

    • JBLmobileG1

      They need to compensate Google for every iphone sold from the time Google purchased Motorola since I am sure they used some of their patents. Better yet they need to come to a truce and let them share each other’s patents and finally let the competition flow without any hold backs. Apple is not only the reason we have so many smartphones today but also the reason why we may not have anything but the iphone since they seem to claim the making of a smart phone…. or so it seems.

    lets egg our local Apple stores….

  • T.K.

    Phone is not available via Google Play

    • souggie

      true, they shut it down, guess apple paid that 96 mill. i blame the patent system, AND apple’s bitch ass for abusing it

  • Kal-El

    Google should file a suit or injunction to block all further sales of iPhones over the use of the notification trays in current iterations of iOS!! But well Google however won’t do that, why??? Because they unlike apple, aren’t scared of losing sales over OS enhancement features that are ‘similar’ in look, feel and operation(or in the case of the notification tray, blatantly copied off android), they actually welcome the competition

  • jezter

    I just ordered my Nexus this morning… hope they still ship since I did buy it when it was not banned from sale yet.

    • jezter

      Just got notification that my order was shipped. I ordered at 2:05PM pacific time on Tuesday.

  • TKfromCLE

    I’m in the middle of a Craigslist transaction, selling my ipad2. I was going to buy a Galaxy Nexus with the monies. Imagine my disappointment when I went to the play store and saw, not a buy now button, but a notify me when available. F my S.

  • Doakie

    Oh, I love how Apple just concretes my raging hatred for all that they do by being the most douche baggy company in existence.

    Very rarely will I actually wish ill upon something, but I hope all of Apple’s corporate buildings burn to the ground while all their employees are home. That way no one is hurt, but it slows their business down big time.

    Also to the attitude of “don’t hate the player, hate the game” about the patent system. Eff that crap. I’ll hate the player and the game. In fact I’ll hate the player for being a douche and volunteering to play the game at all. Without douche bag players the game wouldn’t exist.

    If they ban the Galaxy S3 for T-Mobile before Best Buy gets them and I can’t buy one I’m going to go nuts and will make it my daily routine to knock iPhones to anyone who will listen and will try to convert everyone to Android. Piece of crap Apple.
